If the main attraction doesn’t show up, the kids still want to see a comedy show! So, Pete’s gonna make one up and have the kids (and adults) help write, direct, and design it. What could possibly go wrong?
From Peter Michael Marino, the creator of the critically acclaimed improvised comedy 'Show Up' comes a fresh, fun, interactive twist on the traditional kids show for kids ages 3-10.
Directed by Michole BiancosinO & The Kids. Music by Michael Andrew.
Now playing at The Kraine THeater, 85 East 4th street off 2nd Ave.
